Dunes and Darkness No Match for Tadini in #AegeanProAm1 min read


Posted on: 23rd Sep 2019

PGA of Italy’s Alessandro Tadini provided moments of sheer brilliance and a calm head in round 02 of the Aegean Pro-Am to shoot a scintillating 64 (seven-under-par) around The Dunes Course of Costa Navarino, Greece.

A weather-disrupted start due to early-morning thunderstorms threatened to take second day headlines but nonetheless, the skies cleared, the breeze picked up and Tadini eventually shone through, quite literally, as he birdied two of the last three holes in virtual darkness:

“It was a great day. I kept my long game in great shape and my putting was great. I started slow but I made lots of birdies on the back nine, which was great”.

Behind him in second and third are Pro-Am veterans Nicoló Gaggero (PGA of Italy) and Henrik Engdahl (PGA of Greece) after rounds of 65 (133 total) and 71 (135 total) respectively. This sets up an enticing, closely-fought narrative heading into the final day on the Dunes Course of Costa Navarino, where the Professionals separate from their amateurs to battle it out for the honours.

In what was the final round of the team event, Team Burrows (with amateurs Dorin MateiuAnca Mateiu and Ionut Georgescu) took the title with a second-round score of 91 points (-19), totalling 187 points (-43) over the two days and pipping Team Heraty by three points.
